This month, after receiving over half the votes, Ms. Charlene Ganzel is Collinsville high school’s teacher of the month. Ms. Ganzel has been an employee of Collinsville public schools for 18 years.
She has taught many subjects and grades including, science from grades 6th-9th and math from grades 6th-12th.
“She can relate to all her students, no matter their understanding… That is why she is so successful in the class[room],” said Berry Olinghouse, e2020 Instructor.
Mrs. Ganzel is not only a teacher, but a mom of 2 kids, one now employed by CPS and one a junior at the high school.
She has devoted almost two decades to bettering her students. Ms. Ganzel has great memories, but one of the best is when one of her students received a school bus for his “Make-A-Wish”.
It’s easy to see why Mrs. Ganzel was voted by CHS students as this month’s teacher of the month; she has made a lasting impact as a great teacher and person.
